Remember horizontal split or vertical split your cases are glued together so they do not leak oil. ALSO, the Japanese are notorious for hiding a bolt some where that has to be removed before the separation can take place . Make sure anything you can take off is off and look carefully. You may want to go to a site like or There a blow pictures of your motor there. They will show you all the parts and what you can not see to help you determine if you have missed a bolt some where. Remember to tap or pry gently at different points on the case so you do not damage the case halves. Once you get one area loosened you should be able to work your way around to loosen up the rest. Remember you are also fighting with alignment pins. Work carefully and good luck.

Hi,my 1997 V-Max has got either a clutch or gear problem,when it goes into v-boost in 3rd gear it slips back to 2nd gear.

The coggs between the gears are worn, no simple fix. you just cant get on it very hard. And if you do it will strip out 2nd gear. In order to remove and replace the worn out gear you have to remove the engine from the bike, take off the upper half and split the case. and if youre going to go through all this trouble you might as well rebuild the whole engine. So I had a Vmax that 2nd and 3rd gear went out on me, (my heavy right hand and all) I could still ride it. the gas mpg was bad reving 1st till about 20 mph then skipping to 4th. But hey I put over 40k with it acting this way before I sold her and purchased anouther... Enjoy your beast and she will take good care of you

Hi, there i a knocking noise during the spin cycle on my hotpoint aquarius 6kg wma56 washing machine?? How do i fix it?

I think that the drum bearings have gone on the machine..
To open the door and spin the empty drum quickly by hand and you should hear the noise or say a less amplifed one.. Also another way to check is to move the inner durm up and down to see if there is any play in it
Check for bearing failure by seeing if there is any vertical movement between the moving stainless drum and the fixed outer drum. There should be no vertical movement between them - if there is the bearings have failed and will soon collapse. Check for rusty spray around where the pulley shaft enters the outer drum - early indication of seal and bearing failure. Another method of checking is to remove the drive belt and rotate the drum by hand - there should be no noise, roughness or resistance to rotation. Changing bearings is an involved job, only attempt if you are mechanically competent.
As for changing the bearings.
Power off, remove covers. Disconnect drive belt, remove drive pulley. Remove heater, thermostat and pressure switch. Check if drum splits at front, rear or the middle. If the drum is a plastic welded one- ie one which doesn't split, then its game over. If it splits at front or middle, drum will prob. need removal from machine. This involves dismantling the suspension and damping system and removal of door seal and concrete weights. Undo the drum fixing system - either a clamping ring or a series of peripheral bolts and split the drum. If the drum splits at the rear, removal from machine probably not required. Remove the clamping system and pull off the rear plate. Seal and bearings will come away with the plate. Seal needs to be dug out with a suitable lever and the old bearings hammered out with a punch from opposing sides of the backplate. Refitting is, as they say, a reversal of the above process.
However Unplug the appliance and take the top off.
Check the weight on the top to see if it's slack.
Open the door and with your palm upward put it on the edge of the drum.
Lift it until the weight comes on. Is there a lot of movement?
Press down on the inner drum and swing it side to side, does it sound/feel rough?
Finally, tip the machine rearward a little and from underneath check to see if the front weight is loose.
If all of the above are ok then it's likely the drum support spider has broken one of it's legs and the inner drum is knocking as it spins.
To sort this out you would need to strip the appliance down and remove the inner drum to try and change the bearings and the inner drum support.
This is a major strip down of the appliance.
Hope this helps

Thanks for contacting
